Missy Elliott's originality showed me it was cool to be a nerdy Black girl
In 1997, I missed the bus to school because I absolutely had to see the entire music video for Missy Elliott’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).” I, of course, had no way of knowing that I was witnessing an artist — a future icon, really — who was going to completely shift how the world viewed music as an art form. At the time, I was enraptured by something I’d never seen before, and I was simply unwilling to pry my eyes away.
The fish-eyed lens. The cartoonish special effects. Costuming that appeared to be plucked from a delightfully fun future. Lyrics that exuded a bold confidence. With her first solo, career-solidifying music video, Missy Elliott became a certified force in an industry where women had to claw for the barest hint of recognition. Every hit record — “Sock It 2 Me,” “Hot Boyz,” “Get Ur Freak On,” “Gossip Folks,” “WTF (Where They From),” the list goes on — made it harder to relegate her to a single box.
To simply call Missy Elliott a rapper, even a devastatingly skilled one, ignores the fact that she is also a razor-sharp lyricist, singer, producer, dancer, and visionary. For over two decades, she’s built a legacy so rock solid that the name Missy Elliott has become synonymous with originality and brilliance.
You Don't Have to Listen to Abusive Rappers
Hip-hop has always been a culture that thrives off of young, controversial figures, but with the information that’s already available on the aforementioned artists, it’s impossible for listeners to support them in good conscience. In order to properly reckon with our roles in their success, we really need to stop entertaining and listening to them.

Do men accused of misconduct deserve to have their music in event playlists? These DJs weigh in.
After the rise of the #MeToo movement in October, when survivors of sexual abuse began speaking out about their experiences with new volume and frequency, several powerful men in various segments of the culture were outed for predatory behavior. And that’s led to a wider conversation about sexual harassment and misconduct; in the context of the entertainment and music industries, there’s the thorny question of whether it’s possible or defensible to separate an artist from the art.
In this social climate, DJs are thinking about the role they have to play in all of this.
“As DJs, we literally make a song hot or not,” said Fab Roc, a New York City-based DJ who has spun at corporate pop-up events and local hip-hop and R&B parties. “If we stop playing certain people’s music at events, it speaks volumes and it can also set the trend for people to care.”
